Double XL Movie Review: This light-hearted story of ‘heavy duty’ women is good, just not new…

Double XL Movie Review in Hindi: Sonakshi Sinha and Huma Qureshi are two heroines of Bollywood, whose weight has often been talked about. Answering these things and taunts, both of them have brought a film called ‘Double XL’. Actually Many songs and ghazals have been said about the beauty of women, many records have been created, but the women mentioned in these are actually very few. In this era of ‘Luck 28 Kudi Da and 47 Wet Kudi Da’, ‘Double XL’ is the film which puts forth the story of women having bodies other than those with ‘perfect bodies’. Although there is a lot of talk on body shaming these days, many types of advertisements are being made. So does this film of Huma and Sonakshi tell you something new, shows something special… Let us tell you.

Story: This is the story of Rajshree Trivedi (Huma Qureshi) living in Meerut and Saira Khanna (Sonakshi Sinha) living in Delhi, who are overweight girls. Rajshree is passionate about cricket and wants to become a sports presenter since the age of 19. Whereas Saira Khanna is a fashion designer and she wants to launch her own label. But for these overweight girls, their weight comes in the way of their work every time. Rajshree is not made an anchor in a sports channel due to her weight and Saira is caught cheating on her boyfriend. But on one occasion these two women meet each other and their dreams get mixed. Joining them in this journey are Shrikant (Mahat Raghavendra) and Zorawar Rahmani (Zaheer Iqbal) who not only support them but also see their beauty apart from their weight and fall in love with them. Now whether these two overweight girls can fulfill their double XL size dreams or not, you will get to see that in this film.

Double XL is a light-hearted comedy film, in which an important topic like body shaming has been raised. But this story is not able to show or feel anything that you have not seen or heard before. The beginning of the story is fine but for some time the story seems a bit drawn. Some scenes are very funny in which you will laugh a lot but there is no surprise element anywhere in the story. You will be able to understand what will happen in the next scene or where the story is going. You will get almost equal dose of comedy in the first half and second half, which is a good thing about this film.

Cricket and cinema always attract the audience, which will also be seen in this film. In this film, you will also get to see Kapil Dev and Shikhar Dhawan. But the interview of Kapil Dev which has been hyped so much in the film, if that interview was shown in reality, perhaps the film could have gone up a notch, but this shortcoming bothered me a lot. On the other hand, breaking the stereotype of body type, this film itself is showing the stereotype in the name of sports. Rajshree, who dreams of becoming a sports presenter, speaks and talks only on cricket throughout the film. Just like cool doesn’t mean Coca Cola, similarly sports doesn’t mean only cricket… but well.

Talking about acting, all the four actors have looked good in their respective places. Both Sonakshi and Huma have complemented each other a lot on screen. But I think you will feel a lot of connection with Huma Qureshi. Huma’s problem, her style has been very funny. On the other hand, Zaheer Iqbal has become a loving boy whose style you will like. Although, looking at Zaheer’s character, I felt that something interesting would come out in the end, but nothing like that happened. Mahat Raghavendra is an actor from South and his language is Tamil. His same style has also been kept in the film, which is very nice. You will definitely like Mahat.

For this light-hearted story and funny message, you must watch this film once in the theatre. 3 stars to this movie from me
